Ahead of the forthcoming Super Bowl trailer, a teaser for Mission: Impossible – Fallout has been released, along with a new poster.
It’s been more than 22 years since the release of the first Mission: Impossible movie, and this July Tom Cruise will return for a sixth time in the blockbuster action series. After the success of 2015’s Rogue Nation, the franchise has earned nearly $2.8 billion in global ticket sale, and this year’s Fallout looks to be another wild ride for action fans.
Details of Fallout have been kept under wraps, however a brief description of the film calls it “a race against time after a mission gone wrong.”
Cruise returns to the Impossible Mission Force Agent Ethan Hunt, joined by the rest of the IMF team in the form of Alec Baldwin, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, as well as Rogue Nation ally Isla Faust (Rebecca Ferguson). Returning as Ethan’s wife, Julia, is Michelle Monoghan, along with new cast members Angela Bassett and Henry Cavill.
The teaser footage is unsurprisingly fast-paced, highlighting almost every member of the Fallout cast. Beginning with quick cuts of Cruise and Ferguson, the actions shoots to Cavill, ready to fight. The IMF team also turn up, with Baldwin’s Director Hunley making an appearance, while tech wiz Benji (Pegg) and hacker Luther (Rhames) appear in a spot during a boat chase.
Faust is then revealed beneath a motorcycle helmet visor, while the mysterious characters of Cavill and Bassett also appear alongside each other, before the brief spot ends with a scene Pegg described on The Graham Norton show last week, where he, Cruise, Rhames and Cavill are crammed in a small vechicle, with a hooded figure many have presumed to be Rogue Nation baddie, Sean Harris.

Given this spot didn’t include any of Cruise’s trademark super stunts, it’s likely that one or more of these will appear in the extended Super Bowl trailer. After the poster’s release, it could mean that the stunt to be showcased will be the aerial helicopter stunt which takes centre stage on the poster, and was also teased in a recently released photo.
Whatever Cruise has in store for fans, it will definitely raise the bar from past stunts, as it has been reported that the actor trained for a whole year in advance of it. So, it’s going to be big.
Mission: Impossible – Fallout hits cinemas on July 27th.
